    if it was any more obvious on this model it would jump out and slap u in the chops, low side AC line near the firewall.

    If you need to charge it. You have a leak. Recover the refrigerant,repair the leak,pull a vacuum,see if it holds,then charge.

    There is no other way. You have no way of knowing how much is in there,so how can you add. You can't add from a can,even under pressure. You won't get much in,and it will just leak back out and put more holes in the atmosphere.

SOURCE: Locating low pressure valve on 96 explorer for ac recharge

The largest diameter line is the suction which is low. The small one that runs to a coil by radiator is high pressure. If there is no cooling then you may have air in the system which means a leak must be fixed first. Are you sure the compressor is engaging? You should hear it click and the engine bog down a little.

SOURCE: ac recharge

locate your evaporator inlet outlet lines usually coming out of the fire wall. then follow the line that runs to the compressor. that is your low side line and the service port should be on that line

SOURCE: AC booster recharge hook-up

You can only attach the the recharge hose from the kit to the low side ( A/C service port) and the cap should be blue with a leter L on it. Good luck and follow the instruction and don't over charge the system. With the AC on the coldest setting, use a thermometer in a middle vent. Normal vent temperature readings will vary depending on the (ambient) outside temp. The vent temperature should range from around 42-55 degrees in my experience. If normal gauge readings are obtained and the vent air is cold - STOP don’t overcharge the system. The only proper way to remove refrigerant is with a AC recovery machine so if this is being done at home I can’t emphasize enough not to over charge the system. And actually the best way to insure the proper charge is in a system, is to use an AC machine to recover the R134a and then evacuate and recharge the system with the correct amount. Most cars have the specified amount on a decal under the hood.  Good luck and hope this helps.

1990 Toyota Celice Air Conditioner recharge


Look at the hoses on the back of the a/c compr.. there will be a big and a thin hose, the big hose is the lower pressure hose, that's the one you want to recharge your a/c system, stay away from the thin that one is high pressure, follow the big hose, on it you will find the port to recharge the a/c system.

Where is the low pressure hose located for a/c recharging?


if you look at the ac compressor under the hood there are two hoses, one small and one large, the larger hose is the low press hose, the chargeing port should be in that line or at the receiver drier it goes to.

Air conditioner blower stopped working on 2004


If the blower works but its just not blowing cold air, its possible to recharge the AC system yourself. Most auto parts stores carry AC recharge kits. Instructions to recharge the AC are belowl

RECHARGING AC SYSTEM

1.Turn the truck on and turn AC on HIGH
2.Locate the low side AC line (will have a valve and cap similar to the cap on a tire)
3.Insert the oil or R-134A can to the hose (Do not turn the screw to puncture the can yet)
4.Insert the other end of the refill hose to the low side valve
5.Puncture the R-134A can with the screw on the refill hose
6.You should feel the system suction the refrigerant out of the can
7.Check for frost on the AC lines and the air blowing inside the truck
8.If frost develops and the air is cold, you've successfully recharged the system and disconnect the refill hose. DO NOT ADD MORE REFRIGERANT...overcharging the system will damage your compressor and will be less effective


Best of luck and enjoy your vacation.

Hopefully this answers your question and you're able to get your AC working again. Best of luck.

I need to retrofit and recharge my 1988 Dodge Ram Ac.


First, the old R-12 must be completely evacuated fromt the system. R-12 and R-134A do not mix and won't function together. Once you are sure there's no R-12 left in the system, you need to install an R-134A fill valve on the low side AC line. This is where your refill hose will connect to add R-134A. Once the valve is in place you're ready to fill the system. The compressor requires a minimum of 20psi to engage and should not be filled to more than 45psi.

RECHARGING AC SYSTEM

1.Turn the truck on and turn AC on HIGH
2.Locate the low side AC line (will have a valve and cap similar to the cap on a tire)
3.Insert the oil or R-134A can to the hose (Do not turn the screw to puncture the can yet)
4.Insert the other end of the refill hose to the low side valve
5.Puncture the R-134A can with the screw on the refill hose
6.You should feel the system suction the refrigerant out of the can
7.Check for frost on the AC lines and the air blowing inside the truck
8.If frost develops and the air is cold, you've successfully recharged the system and disconnect the refill hose. DO NOT ADD MORE REFRIGERANT...overcharging the system will damage your compressor and will be less effective
